Jose Jose, Mexican Singer, Falls Off Stage During Anniversary Concert (VIDEO)

It only took one misstep to come tumbling down.

During a concert celebrating his 50 years in music, Mexican crooner José José tried to greet a fan at the side of the stage when he suddenly fell nearly five feet into the crowd. Fortunately, the singer was not injured during the incident and even poked fun at himself.

Known as the “Prince of the Songs,” José José observed the milestone year in his career with a concert in Mexico City last Friday. The special occasion was also the first time the 64-year-old singer performed after undergoing surgery for an hernia in the groin, according to Mexican newspaper El Universal.

The crooner celebrated the event with some 4,000 fans in a white suit, but the mood turned ominous when the star unexpectedly took a tumble off the stage. Once the singer was back on his feet, the crowd began shouting: “José José lives! José José lives!”

Once back on stage, the star didn’t hesitate to laugh and tell the audience “I didn’t plan to fall tonight.”
